I recently rented Motorstorm 2: Pacific Rift. I see a lot of differences in comparison to the original Motorstorm game. First, the graphics are much smoother, and vibrant. Second, the actual gameplay doesn’t seem to have many hickups that I have found.
I have not had a chance to play the online matches yet, but the Split Screen mode is absolutely amazing. There aren’t many games of this type that can be played split screen. Split screen supports up to 4 players. The single player mode is very lengthy. I played for @ 2 hours, and had only just cleared the first set of upgrades.
The vehicles are rendered quite well. The crashes, and devastation is captured as if the game makers were right there at the time of impact.
Motorstorm 2: Pacific Rift is like a Racing Demolition Derby.
I give the game a 9 out of 10.
